Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd, one of the foremost triple-double artists in NBA history, believes Russell Westbrook can average a triple-double this season.Kidd, who is third all time in triple-doubles with 107, told ESPN that he could only dream of doing what Westbrook is doing right now. He has been most impressed with Westbrooks ability to win during his streak of five straight triple-doubles -- and Westbrooks ability to do it all without Kevin Durant.It can be done, Kidd said of averaging a triple-double in a season, a feat not seen since Oscar Robertson did so in 1961-62. I have always said I think it could be done. You got to have a special player, and I think we are looking at a special player.Westbrook is on a tear that hasnt been seen in decades. He became the first NBA player to record five consecutive triple-doubles since Michael Jordan did so in 1989. On Sunday, the Thunder point guard had 28 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists in a 101-92 win over New Orleans. Westbrook also had 10 turnovers, which made him the first since Kidd in 2000 to register double digits in all four categories.Westbrook headed into Mondays Thunder game in Atlanta averaging 31 points, 11.3 assists and 10.8 rebounds in 21 games this season. No NBA player has averaged a triple-double in a season since Robertsons 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists per game in 1961-62.He is athletic, Kidd said. [But you need] guys scoring the ball [on your team]. Assists is hard to get. But understand he is doing this without KD. That is what makes it even more special.Kidd ranks third on the all-time triple-double list behind Robertson (181) and Magic Johnson (138). Westbrook is currently sixth, with 47 career triple-doubles, and is 12 behind Larry Bird (59). Wilt Chamberlain is in fourth with 78.The Thunder (13-8) have won all five games during Westbrooks triple-double streak and, heading to Atlanta, were 8-2 when the point guard notches a triple-double.Winning with the triple-double, that means you have controlled the whole game, Kidd said. A lot of times, you can have a triple-double, but winning and having a triple-double is the most impressive.Of the 10 players in NBA history with at least 30 triple-doubles, only Wilt Chamberlain (69-9) has a better win percentage than Westbrooks. The Thunder are 41-6 when Westbrook records a triple-double, according to Elias. Westbrooks 10 triple-doubles in 21 games this season are the fastest anybody has reached 10 since Robertson needed only 12 games in 1961.Magic Johnson, who averaged a double-double in points and assists nine times in his career, came close in 1981-82 to averaging a triple-double. That season, he finished with 18.6 points, 9.5 assists and a career-high 9.6 rebounds.In his 19 seasons, Kidd averaged a double-double three times. He averaged 16.9 points, 10.8 assists and 6.8 rebounds in the lockout-shortened, 50-game 1998-99 season. He averaged 14.3 points, 10.1 rebounds and 7.2 assists the next season for the Suns. In 2007-08, Kidd averaged 10.8 points, 10.1 assists and 7.5 rebounds.Kidd played from 1994 to 2013, with much of his career spent during a time when the game was considered to be more physical, with more dominant big men to contend with on the boards. Even so, the future Hall of Famer said he would not be able to duplicate what Westbrook is doing, even if he played his prime in todays more perimeter-oriented and offensive-minded NBA.No. No, Kidd said. He is athletic. I wasnt athletic like that. You put basketball IQ, thinking the game and then you put it with what he is doing athletically ... It is like LeBron. He is another one that can do it. For me, it was always the scoring part that was the hardest.The way the game is being played, shooting a lot more 3s, theres a lot more rebounds to be had. But he is playing at a very high level. He also doesnt get enough credit for his basketball IQ. Darron Lee Jersey . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. Camo Jets Jerseys . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. http://www.officialjetsnflauthenticshop.com/ . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes.

Wasps have branded the refereeing error that led to Connachts 20-18 Champions Cup victory hugely disappointing.Stand-in referee Mathieu Raynal incorrectly allowed Connacht to take a lineout having kicked to touch from a penalty that was awarded on full-time, from which the Galway men claimed victory through a converted try.Test referee Raynal started Saturdays clash at Galways Sportsground as an assistant but had taken over the main officiating when Jerome Garces suffered a hamstring problem in the 74th minute.Tournament organisers European Professional Club Rugby quickly admitted Raynals error after the clash, but insisted the result stands, leaving Wasps lamenting a tougher route to quarterfinal qualification.We all understand referees are only human and mistakes do occasionally happen, a Wasps statement read.However, for a referee and fourth official to get the laws of the game wrong at a crucial stage of a big match is hugely disappointing.The error made could have serious repercussions in terms of Wasps qualification hopes or the prospect of securing a home quarterfinal.Naulia Dawais try and Jack Cartys conversion stole Connacht a victory that leaves the Galway side tied with Wasps annd Toulouse on 13 points after four of the six matches in Pool Two.ddddddddddddaynals error appears to have stemmed from confusion over a change to the law that will be trialled in the southern hemisphere from January 1 and in the north from Aug. 1.Once the trials are enforced, teams will be allowed to take a lineout from a penalty kicked to touch in overtime.Connacht captain John Muldoon asked if his side could take the lineout, and Raynal eventually agreed.Wasps said their protests at the time fell on deaf ears.Wasps pitchside officials immediately stressed to the fourth official that Connacht could not take the lineout, as the referee had indicated time had gone beyond 80 minutes, their statement continued.Wasps players on the pitch also emphasised to the referee that time was up. Despite several protests, the lineout was still allowed to be taken.EPCR have stated that the result stands. We congratulate Connacht after a hard-fought contest and we will now move on to the final rounds, after tough Premiership games against Bath, Newcastle and Leicester Tigers.
